Was roaming around and looking for a nice sit-down place to eat. Since I was travelling solo, didn't need to ask anyone else for approvals. Came across this place and checked out the menu. Reasonably priced. Was going to order a T-bone steak but not available. Settled with the filet mignon.

Had an awesome view of the river. Planned to stick around a bit longer after dinner but rain started to drop.

The fries reminded me of those I tasted in France. Solid portion. Ordered dessert (frozen apple with ice cream) and a lime soda. Total damage was more or less around $30USD.

Definitely not for those who are on a shoe-string budget. This was the only meal that I spent over $20USD on.

Had an awesome view of the river as the sun set. Recommended for couples who are looking for a romantic night out.

Sitting on the characterful veranda watching the evening start is beautiful. The service was good and the main laap fish was excellent. The Coloeur cafe dessert was nice.

The Couleur restaurant is located in a French colonial building on the peninsula of Luang Prabang, if you sit on the tables outside you have a beautiful view of the river, if you sit inside it is well decorated in soothing pastel colours. It has an extensive menu and, taking account of the service and quality of the meals, is reasonably priced, the staff are friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

To paraphrase the famous book title , this restaurant is "almost French" .
Situated in a beautiful colonial building on the river , the setting of this restaurant is almost ideal, close to the city Center and night market. We went there with my daughter one week before Christmas for an evening meal . The place was very quiet , we ordered a pumpkin soup, some gnocchi , a ribbeye steak and 50 cl of rosé wine. Everything was very good including the steak cooked to perfection as ordered. The bill was around 50 $ , which is a bit on the high side in Luang Prabang.
Why not then make it truly upscale with white linen cloth on table ? Or to the opposite make it a bit more affordable and more popular?
To me it looked neither here nor there in terms of market positioning.
The quality of the food deserved better than 2 customers that evening.

What a find this restaurant was. Awesome service, even with the continuous power failures inflicted on this area. The food was superb, freshly prepared, worth every cent paid, and the staff just so nice and professional. A little more expensive than most eateries, but worth it.
